People fascinate me, they always have. What they do. How they do it. But more importantly, why they do it. Philosophy is everything to me: I believe it is the thoughts behind words and deeds that set the scenes of a person’s life.
This fascination with characters has helped form my writing - I never impose a story upon my characters, they reveal their stories to me.
My earlier books are modern day fables. They chart a woman’s quest for a deeper meaning to life and reflect my own endeavours and experiences. US critics generously referred to me as ‘a storyteller extraordinaire’ for these books.
